Our point when creating this Project was to help students achieve their skills to overcome failure, to promote success, self-confidence, self-esteem, participatory spirit, social acceptance and over all basic skills.
School failure is a process where a student slips farther and farther behind his peers and gradually disconnects from the educational system. The end result of school failure is dropping out before graduation. Many cases of school failure happen among students who have the ability and intelligence to succeed but who are unable or unwilling to apply these abilities in the school setting. There are several factors that can lead to school failure, among them depression, anxiety, problems in the family, and learning disabilities.
Our project aimed to overcome these problems with theatrical and literal studies using and learning epic stories.
The Project helped pupils in many ways such as: prevent social exclusion, prevention of early school-leaving, developing foreign language learning, national and international consciousness, improving ICT skills.
Our project had effective strategies for enhancing basic skills and promoting entrepreneurship education and social entrepreneurship among young people with its activities during two years.
The project “Sagas From Past To The Future” was meant to compare a special aspect of literature – sagas – in different cultures. This did not only include a mere presentation of the most influential authors of epic, lyric, and dramatic writing within the participating countries, but also the developing, practicing and performing of a corporate theatre play on the basis of typical national sagas. This contained stage design and the creation of props and costumes for the actors as well.
